About This Class

In this class, you will learn how to build a modern portfolio type front page with WordPress.

You will learn how to configure WordPress properly and how to level-up and use its content editor.

I will also show you how to add some personal touch with custom css. I will explain how css works and how you and add custom css to your WordPress website.

This class is accessible to beginners. I will guide you step-by-step from a fresh WordPress installation towards the outcome.

Still, it can be interesting and challenging for more advanced WordPress users who don’t have much experience with the Gutenberg content editor. And for those who would like to go further with the customization and start working with css.

You can see the demo of what we are going to build here.

To follow up with this class, you will only need a WordPress installation. I will also guide you through the complete website setup with one of the popular web hosting services.
